Hello

Post by grumpyintheshed » Sun Jun 17, 2018 1:52 pm

Afternoon Gents, fresh meat here to ask all the silly questions again :) (only kidding, I know where the search button is)
But..
I am starting from scratch knowledge-wise regarding Cubs in all their forms. I started with scooters in the 80's and had a variety of bikes over the years and currently reviving my old VT500.
Anyway.. a mate has just bought a C90 economy (?) and as I am usually covered in oil I have become by default the bike "expert" so any technical questions will no doubt be coming my way and therefore yours if I dont know the answer :D
Let the search commence :)

BTW I /we are based near Llanelli, South Wales.

Great username, welcome! :D

Of course, there are those who are very happy to be in the shed! :lol:

I'm not one of them, I'd rather be out riding. ;) :D :D :D
